Driver filmed swerving on M6 before 'spectacular' crash

A dangerous driver has been jailed after being filmed driving in his camper van erratically on the M6 near Carlisle.

David Whitehead was seen swerving all over the motorway between Southwaite, near Carlisle, and the South Lakes.

Carlisle Crown Court heard a fellow motorist with a dashboard-mounted camera followed his motor home out of a service area near Kendal and filmed the "spectacular" crash.

Whitehead, of Parkinson Street, Burnley, admitted dangerous driving and was jailed for 12 months.
